Does anyone know what other chemo is available for gall bladder cancer apart from Gem/Cist?

My oncologist has told me that she can possibly offer another chemo after this round of cisplatin and Gemcitabine. This is all palliative as the cancer has now spread to my peritoneum. Has anyone had any other chemotherapy drug for this cancer?

Thank you in advance

Hi

I've just popped over from the melanoma group having noticed that your post had gone unanswered.

I'm afraid I don't know the answer to your question but you could post it in ask a nurse, where one of the specialist nurses will try to get back to you within 2 working days, or phone the Macmillan Support Line on 0808 808 0000. It's free to call, available between 9am to 8pm Monday to Friday and staffed by trained experts who should be able to help.

Best wishes x
